BUSES AND MORE BUSES, originally uploaded by infomatique.

More than 40,000 women from around the country and the world gathered at Fitzwilliam Square in Dublin this afternoon for the annual Flora Mini-Marathon.

Annette Kealy from Howth in Co Dublin won this year's race when she crossed the finish line at St Stephen's Green in a time of 35 minutes and 45 seconds.

It is an extra special day for the mother-of-four from the Raheny-Shamrock running club as she is celebrating her 40th birthday.

I was there taking photographs and I must admit that seeing 40,000 women in the same place at the same time is an amazing sight and a very noisy experience but it was great fun. To give you some idea just how big this really was I am uploading photographs showing the rows of buses parked along the grand canal, there must not have been a bus left for anything else throughout the island of Ireland.
